Call your doctor and tell him concisely how badly things are for you right now.

As I understand it carafate should give you about 6 hours of relief if you take is 2 hours after a meal and 1 hour before the next one (and don't take it near taking medication). I took some last night and it worked for about 6 hours from when I took it. Good luck!

I have been given a short supply of Carafate (Sucralfate) to try out. I have tried it twice, last thing at night, and each time woke with the worst nausea I've had in 2 years - nearly didn't manage the school run because of it! Bit nervous of trying it again but may try it on waking one day, although that's when I take my Zantac etc, so can't do that at the moment either. Disappointed it made me feel so green! rolleyes

I have it and have taken it once, which was at night when I knew and felt that I was going to have heartburn all night. I took it, and only had a little bit of heartburn 12 hours later the next morning. I am planning on just having it on hand for those nights :)
